Thursday Tech Tips
This week’s tip is definitely old-fashioned.
Due to our addiction to smartphones, 1 in 10 people can’t even remember their own number. according to a survey by consumer site WhistleOut. It also turned out that 16% did not remember their parents’ numbers; 17% do not remember their partner’s number, and 49% remember only 2 to 5 numbers of their contacts. And relatively, nearly one in three Americans don’t remember their emergency contact numbers.
It’s a problem, says Dr. Janet Hurley, a longtime family physician in Tyler, Texas. She advises people to remember at least two emergency contact numbers.especially if their phones are damaged or lost.
“I suggest you manually dial the number for a while until you’re sure you’ve memorized it,” says Hurley. “If you have an accident in the future when your cell phone is not available, you will definitely be glad you did.”
Have a great weekend, Talking Tech readers!
